am i crazy for thinking a couple of wooden bucks with the right curve could be used to press a straight oil cooler into a curved oil cooler?
with enough surface contact to keep from bending the fins,maybe a layer of felt on each side. or a thin piece of 1/4 inch plywood on each side to protect the fins?
yeah prolly crazy who would buy an oil cooler just to bend it up ???

Luckily it fell into me and no damage was done but it damn near gave me a heart attack. With the spools and the stand it is VERY sturdy and cannot slip off as it did before. Two, I wasn't happy with the foot of the kickstand I made so I cut it off and remade it, the shoulder bolt also took some machining to get the spring to clear it. I made the stainless ball from scratch on the lathe for a throwback to the original kickstand. I think I might still need to add a tang on it to make it easier to kick out.
The only things left are:
Replace a few bolts with ARP to match
install clutch cable
install left footpeg/linkage
6 YEARS LATER AND ITS ALMOST DONE
I have the same rear stand, and was wondering how to install spools to my 78 KZ1000.
